Has anyone used the Viscosity client with Vyatta, an opensource router project - http://www.vyatta.org ? Vyatta supports OpenVPN so I am quite sure that it will work, I am just looking for tips or feedback, or even some sample config settings.

Thanks,

So, I can report back that Vyatta+Viscosity works very well. I am very impressed with Viscosity (first time tying it). Vyatta requires TLS auth, so it is necessary to create server and client certs. Also LZO Compression seemed to be causing issues, so I disabled for now. Tested using TCP and UDP.

relevant Vyatta config:

interfaces {
openvpn vtun1 {
local-port 1194
mode server
openvpn-option "--push dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8"
server {
client client2 {
push-route 192.168.10.0/24
push-route 192.168.11.0/24
}
subnet 192.168.20.0/24
}
tls {
ca-cert-file /config/auth/ca.crt
cert-file /config/auth/vyatta.crt
dh-file /config/auth/dh1024.pem
key-file /config/auth/vyatta.key
}
}
}
